We arrived at Milan Malpensa airport in the morning. We then took the Malpensa Express from the airport to Milano Centrale, the main railway station in Milan to connect to other cities in Italy and other parts of Europe. Milano Centrale was built during the Mussolini era, hence its grandiose Fascist-style architecture.
We took high-speed train, Frecciarossa, for our final destination of the day, Rome. The journey only took around 3 hours from Milan to Rome. The train is really nice, but the scenery is so-so. The only interesting part is when you pass through the hill towns of Tuscany.
After we arrived, we checked-in at B&B Agli Horta Sallustiani and immediately went out again. We walked to Galleria Borghese, around 10 minutes of walk from the B&B. Galleria Borghese is a prominent art gallery in Rome. Its collection highlights include sculptures by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian. The number of visitors to the gallery is limited so you need to make a reservation beforehand to reserve your time slot of visit. Unfortunately you can’t take pictures inside; here’s its Wiki page to get a glimpse of what’s inside.
We finished our day by having a simple pasta dinner near our B&B.
